President Park Geun Hye (65) has become the first president ever in South Korean history to be impeached while in office on March 10 (KST).

She was elected to office in 2012 as the first ever female president, but became wrapped up in a series of controversial scandals dealing with confiding in her childhood friend Choi Soon Sil in national matters, bribery from businesses like Samsung, and more. 


The impeachment was ruled with a unanimous vote of 8 in favor to 0 against. By law, the country must elect a new president within 60 days. The acting president, Hwang Kyo Ahn, an ally of Park, will remain in office in the interim.

    Park Chung Hee essentially had it coming, at least if you go by "그때 그사람들" ("The President's Last Bang").

    I'm betting there will be civil war if Trump gets impeached.

    Why lost most female presidents in the world their presidency by impeachment? - Peron (Argentina) - Russiv (Brasil) - Golda Meir (Israel) - Park Geun Hye (S-Korea) - Peu (Thailand)

    That's just sad. I was hoping for better. I have come to love South Korea in the last couple years. It's culture, music, nature, and even like the President. This whole world is going bad, and only going to get worse, unless people start communicating and stop hating everything, and everyone. I really like her from all I have read before the scandal with that "woman" started the road downhill for President Park.  Hope things get better.
